Would you like me to find about 20-30 verses where Jesus was offended people? That would be easy.
Even the Apostle Paul stated that if he were a man pleaser, he is not the servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10: 10 For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
By the way, it’s not hateful to say I won’t vote for a man who does not esteem my values. It’s also not hateful to say I will vote 3rd party, if necessary.
If you feel comfortable calling me hateful, I am sorry to have engaged in any debate with you.
I see you as having the goal that all conservatives should dance to the tune of YOUR Christianity.
What about these conservatives: good, kind ethical Jews, Hindus, Buddahists, Athiests? Even good kind Muslims? There is no room for them and their beliefs in YOUR third party.
This country is grounded in Judeo-Christian foundations. Thank God. But integrated in that foundation is something called tolerance. This government was not instituted by the founders to be Christian or Biblical. That is a personal realm, not a governmental realm. When governments are ruled by religion...people die. (even Christian Governments, and don’t refer me back to a bunch of Popes, think Calvinists in Switzerland, Puritans in New England and so forth).
You need to be thankful that we do live in a country where Christians CAN worship and live their lives by their Christian tenets.
If you can’t make the leap emotionally or intellectually to do everything in your power to prevent Hillary’s socialism (which will REALLY be the first big step toward the destruction of our religious rights) then I can add nothing further to this discussion.
